Content (Syllabus outline)
The course deals with different dimensions, definitions and theoretical controversies of the concept of globalization. It examines how globalization differs from the phenomena of globalism and globality, and deals with media, economic, political and cultural globalization. At the same time attention is paid to the study of the denationalisation of the public sphere where the focus is on the analysis of processes of migration. With the idea of “the autonomy of migration” the global is discussed together and in confrontation with the persistence of the axiomatics of the nation-state. Furthermore, the course introduces the concept of citizenship with the study of contemporary theories of multicultural, cosmopolitan and transnational citizenship, reflecting on citizenship practices as individual-collective action in global connections.
